    Sports Eyewear Goggles & Eyeglasses Frames

    No matter who you are, if you have vision problems, it is important that you find some way to deal with them. This is just as true for athletes as it is for anyone else. Unfortunately, athletes have their own issue: keeping their sports goggles frames safe while they play. Thankfully, there is a solution to that: sport eyewear frames. You can get these kinds of sports eyeglasses frames from an optician at A. B. See Optical in Los Angeles, CA.

    Sports Frames

    For obvious reasons, you cannot reasonably wear regular sports eyeglasses frames while you play sports, particularly contact sports. If you do, the likelihood that your sports frames for glasses wind up in pieces increases dramatically. Worse, eyeglasses are not designed to be worn in high-impact, high-speed situations, so even if your sports goggles frames don't break, the likelihood that you end up with your glasses off your face is still high. All too often, people simply opt to not wear their eyeglasses during sports, which only makes it that much more difficult for them to properly enjoy their sport of choice. Thankfully, one does not have to choose between wearing their eyeglasses or putting them at risk.

    Sports Eyeglasses Frames are a pretty simple concept. Basically, sports frames work like goggles; instead of getting tucked behind your ears, the sports goggles frames go around your head. They are a little more expensive than basic frames but are worth the extra expense. Compared to broken glasses during sports, that extra cost will save itself rather quickly. And if you can also compare the cost to simply not wearing glasses while you play sports: Not wearing sports eyeglasses frames can contribute to eye strain, which can create both long-term and short-term issues. You can work with your optician on adjusting the sport eyewear frames for your or your child's comfort, even if they intend to wear a helmet during sports. If so, be sure to bring the helmet in so the optician knows how the frames will fit in these circumstances.

    Undoubtedly, sports frames are great for people with vision issues, but that's not the extent of their value. Sports eyeglasses frames do a world of good to protect the eyes of their wearer from injury, be it a stray elbow or a stray ball. It does not take much when playing sports to cause your eyes to become damaged, after all.

    Sports are enjoyable, and by wearing the proper sports frames, they will be that much more fun and safer.<a href=""> Get in contact with an A. B. See Optical optician</a> in Los Angeles, CA, by calling (877) 538-0542 to get a pair today!

    Many people are cheered by a bright, sunny day, but the effect of all that sunlight on the eyes is a less sunny proposition. UV and glare can create a variety of issues, from dangerous “snowblindness” to irreversible disorders that threaten your eyesight. Here are some frequently asked questions about the role of sports goggles frames in protecting the eyes from harm. If you want to know more about choosing the right sports eyeglasses frames, call Miretsky at (877) 538-0542 today.


    UV stands for ultraviolet, a band of spectrum invisible to the eye. Ultraviolet light consists of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. UVC rays are stopped in Earth's atmosphere before they reach the eye, but UVA and UVB can both reach the eye and potentially damage it.

    UV rays can cause proteins inside the lens to become opaque or cloudy, a condition known as cataracts. Cataracts can make interfere with night vision, reduce your ability to see colors, and make reading difficult; they cannot be reversed, only removed. UV exposure can also cause retinal damage, changes in the eye tissues, and a temporary but irritating "sunburn" of the cornea called photokeratitis.

    Choose sport eyewear frames that claim to block at least 99 percent of UV rays -- UVA as well as UVB. Look for the label reading "UV 400," since this designation means that the glasses block UV rays as small as 400 nanometers, providing 100 percent eye protection. Of course, you need to protect your eyes from the glare caused by the visible spectrum as well. To accomplish this, select products that block 75 to 90 percent of visible light.

    Polarized lenses are specially designed to filter out certain types of glare that tend to radiate upward from horizontal surfaces when sunlight bounces off of these surfaces. They are recommended for tasks such as boating, fishing, skiing, golfing, jogging, and driving. Most polarized lenses will bear a label identifying them as such.

    We are able to provide you with a wide range of sunglass options. If you normally wear glasses to correct your eyesight, you may be happy with a non-prescription pair of clip-ons or wraparound glasses that simply fit over your lenses. If you'd rather not wear that much equipment on your head all at once, you can order a pair of prescription "shades," or you can order glasses that darken when exposed to bright light.

    If you worry about light, including harmful UV, leaking in through the sides or top of your sports goggles frames, wear a broad-brimmed hat to reduce some of this exposure. If you use prescription eyewear to correct your eyesight, you may also want to think about getting a pair of UV-blocking contact lenses in your prescription. These lenses may be worn alongside a non-prescription pair of sports goggles frames for optimum eye protection. For more information on choosing the right sports sunglasses, contact our office today.
